[A England] Anne Boleyn

March already – and Hamburg is still covered with snow. At least the sun is shining today and I will be going out, if only for shopping because I am still recovering from the flu but getting better every day.

Sunshine is normally ideal for holographic nail varnishes but it’s been a while since I had applied Anne Boleyn and taken the photos. This has a dark red base with a scattered holographic finish.

Natural light. Unfortunaly, photos were still taken in the flat so that the daylight doesn’t bring out the holo much more.

[A England] Sir Loyal Heart

Sir Loyal Heart. Another unique nail colour in my stash; its base shifts between bronze and brown, containing maroon and golden shimmer. And, of course (because it’s A England 🙂 ) it’s a scattered holo finish.

[A England] Excalibur Renaissance

Last post for this year, as it seems. I seize the opportunity to wish you all a great 2018. Enjoy your festivities or whatever you have planned for New Year’s Eve.

This is Excalibur Renaissance, the re-formulated Excalibur. Sadly I don’t own the original version, so I cannot compare. But this is a silver metallic and really stands out.

[A England] The Most Happy

Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂 Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Christmastime and wishing you happy holidays from the bottom of my heart. I’m at my mother’s place and a bit tired although it was a nice trip because there weren’t many people travelling. I guess most people preferred to stay at home today, spending time with their beloved ones.

At Lower Saxony, we have no snow and I admit I like the mild wheather. Tomorrow we are going to watch a DVD, King Arthur – Legend of the Sword. 😉 The swimming bath is closed, so I’ll go there again on Boxing Day.

As for The Most Happy, I had this on my nails a couple of days ago. It’s bright purple with holographic glitter and a scattered holo finish.

[A England] Katherine of Aragon

On to the next Tudoresque nail varnish. I thought Katherine of Aragon (Henry’s first wife)would make a beautiful colour for the last days before Christmas. It’s an antique gold shade with a hint of taupe and containing holographic glitter, resulting in a scattered holo finish.

Two coats applied. Again, one coat would have been fine too, with regards to opaqueness.

[A England] Katherine Parr

Sorry for posting so many A England nail colours these days, but it’s the only brand I am currently wearing, since I am so addicted to the Tudoresque collection. 😉 Today’s nail varnish is Katherine Parr, again scattered holographic finish. Base colour is blue but with hints of lilac and a pink shimmer.

Two coats shown below. This, too, applies flawlessly and presents high opaqueness.
